Get rid of the CBC?

The Canadian Press reports that if a Canadian politician gets her way, the CBC will be no more.

Conservative leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch is proposing to scrap the CBC if she manages to reach the Prime Minister’s Office.

Leitch, whose leadership campaign made headlines when she proposed screening new immigrants for what she described as “anti-Canadian values,” now has the national broadcaster in her sights.

While leadership rival Maxime Bernier has proposed reworking the CBC’s mandate, cutting its funding and barring it from selling private advertising, Leitch goes much further.

She says the broadcaster doesn’t need reform — it needs to be put out of business altogether.
